This is a package of data derived from the Pleiades gazetteer
of ancient places. It is used for archival and redistribution purposes
and is likely to be less up-to-date than the live data at https://pleiades.stoa.org.
Pleiades is a community-built gazetteer and graph of ancient
places. It publishes authoritative information about ancient places and
spaces, providing unique services for finding, displaying, and reusing
that information under open license. It publishes not just for
individual human users, but also for search engines and for the widening
array of computational research and visualization tools that support
humanities teaching and research.
Pleiades is a continuously published scholarly reference
work for the 21st century. We embrace the new paradigm of citizen
humanities, encouraging contributions from any knowledgeable person and
doing so in a context of pervasive peer review. Pleiades
welcomes your contribution, no matter how small, and we have a number of
useful tasks suitable for volunteers of every interest.
